The very first thing I would do with a piece of property is fence it. What kind of fence depends on what you want to keep out, or keep in. I keep my garden close to the house, and have a guard dog so deer and elk might pass through but they don't hang around.

Call your county extension agent. They can tell you what will and will not grow well in your area. And sometimes can get you soil tests at little or no cost.

Remember, when living on a Homestead, everything takes longer and cost more than you expected.
